Drinking water from the air and without consuming electricity. This is what the Kumulus-1 generator offers, a simple device the size of a small washing machine that can produce up to 30 liters of drinking water per day. Undoubtedly, this is a promising innovation for the production of water for human consumption where the resource is scarce.
The invention is the work of a group of Tunisian engineers and limited to converting the humidity of the air into drinkable water.something that some devices already do, but with a degree of efficiency never seen before.
The machine provides access to a clean, safe and stable water source, even in dry regions such as North Africa. It is an ideal system for schools and towns without potable water, as well as for factories, offices and hotels that want to reduce their consumption of ground water or bottled water to avoid plastic contamination.
The process by which Kumulus-1 works is simple: in fact, reproduces the morning dew phenomenon in its interior. It takes moisture from the air, cools it and condenses it into water and stores it in an inner tank. A cleaning filter located at the top removes contaminants from the air to ensure the drinkability of the liquid.
The first machine was installed at a school in the rural town of El Bayadha, where access to water is limited. There this water generator was greeted with joy for delivering 30 liters of water per day to this school.
The outstanding quality of the machine, besides its ease of use, lies in its fully autonomous character as it does not need to be connected to an electric current. It has a photovoltaic solar panel that produces the electricity required for the process.So it can be placed anywhere.
The company reminds on its website that 1,000 million people on the planet currently do not have access to drinking water, and 31% of the world’s schools lack this resource.
The innovation that Kumulus-1 thinks can largely and simply solve a daily human drama such as the death of 500,000 children under the age of 5 due to poor water quality.
